Paracentesis peritoneal es una punción quirúrgica de la cavidad peritoneal para la aspiración de ascitis, término que denota la acumulación. que se insertará el instrumento de paracentesis; Condición abdominal severa . La paracentesis sin embargo no está libre de complicaciones, por lo que es particularmente importante dar coloides como reemplazo, para prevenirla.

Thus, caution should be adopted in patients who has reached these alterations.

Requirements for the diagnosis of refractory ascites are: The clinical features are those of cough, dyspnoea, chest pain or fever in a patient with a pleural effusion, of an associated spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, or of unexplained deterioration in a patients condition. Thus, the comparison between TIPS and LVP should be re-evaluated in the light of paracenteis stable hemodynamic effects achieved by the covered stents.

Ascites in hepatic cirrhosis develops because of a considerable increase of total body sodium and water, and portal hypertension which localises much of that sodium and water to the peritoneal cavity Arroyo et al Moreover, patients with cirrhosis and ascites are frequentely complicated by acute episode of bacterial infection.

Accordingly, a strict selection of candidates could obviate most of such complications. Furthermore, the ascites protein may rise during diuretic therapy Hoefs Patients who are clinically well can be treated with broadspectrum quinolones such as ciprofloxacin. The most effective treatment is a third- generation cephalosporin such as cefotaxime 1g intravenously 8 hourly.

Circulating dysfunction, indicated by increased plasma renin, aldosterone and noradrenaline may be associated with renal impairment, and though this impairment is often reversible, this is not always the case. Complicciones removal of 51 of fluid withoud replacement may not paracenhesis followed by any and circulatory change Peltekian et albut larger amounts cause an immediate increase in cardiac output which soon returns to normal, and a fall in mean arterial pressure, systemic vascular resistance, right atrial pressure and pulmonary capillary pressure which can still be present a week later Ruiz del-Arbot et al Hepatology 12, It usually develops insidiously without causing haemodynamic instability, and is most often due to a hepatocellular carcinoma.

Quality of life in refractory ascites: J Hepatol, 56psracentesis. Mechanism and Effect on Hepatic Hemodynamics in Cirrhosis.

N Engl J Med,pp. Spironolactone is pzracentesis safe drug but it can cause hyperkalaemia and potassium supplements including salt substitutes must not be given concomitantly. Portal hypertension is caused primarily by an increased resistance to blood flow which, in hepatic cirrhosis, occurs in the hepatic parenchyma.


Three general theories have been proposed to explain renal retention of sodium in hepatic cirrhosis Ring-Larsen and Henriksen, This treatment takes time, and increasingly doctors use therapeutic paracentesis with sodium restriction and diuretics to prevent recurrence of ascites. The supra-additive natriuretic effect additional of quinethazone or bendrofflumethiazide during long-term treatment with furosemide and spironolactone. Prevention of refractory ascites To prevent or delay the occurrence of refractory ascites is a very important clinical issue.

Important factors paracentedis ascites include removing precipitating factors, controlling sodium intake and sometimes water intakepromoting sodium excretion with diuretic drugs, removing ascites by paracentesis, and diverting ascitic fluid into the systemic circulation via a transjugular intrahepatic portal systemic stent TIPSS shunt or a Le Veen shunt lt is very doubtful whether any of this treatment prolongs life, and as the prognosis for patients with hepatic cirrhosis and ascites is generally poor, liver transplantation shoulcl be considered.

Thus, when a patient with ascites becomes unwell or develops hepatic encephalopathy for no obvious reason, SBP should be sought. Liver Int, 30pp. The median survival of patients suffering from refractory ascites is approximately 6 months. The most widely used is “shifting clullness”.

These patients have lost their ascites and oedema and show clinical features of dehydration, tachycardia, hypotension and uraemia.

Mainly, we wished to explore which of the predicting variables could be complicacilnes to prefer large-volume paracentesis or TIPS. Relatively large doses may be needed to produce an adequate diuresis in ascites due to cirrhosis due to the effects of hyperalclosteronism and possibly reduced renal sensitivity to the drugs. Pathogenesis of ascites formation and hepatorenal syndrome: Spironolactone is generally regarded as the drug of choice for longterin treatment, other diuretics are added when spironolactone produces an inadequate diuresis, and bendrofluazide is needed only very occasionally.

Other drugs can promoje renal retention of sodium and these include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, corticosteroids, oestrogens and metociopramide.

Paracentesis Abdominal

Simulated training program in abdominal paracentesis for Surgical portasystemic shunts proved effective in the secondary prevention of variceal bleeding but have fallen into disuse because thay were associated with an increased copmlicaciones of hepatic encephalopathy and did not prolong fife.

Diastolic dysfunction is frequently detected in this setting and heart structural changes are being characterized. Therapeutic interventions targeted to prevent and manage cardiovascular deterioration are in progress. This is done most safely by measuring the wedged hepatic venous pressure.

J Hepatol, 54pp. This revision was aimed to report the evidences on the treatment of patients with cirrhosis and refractory ascites. Thus, the comparison between TIPS and Complicaciknes should be re-evaluated in the light of the stable hemodynamic effects achieved by the covered stents. Notwithstanding, all these advantages should be weighted with the consistent higher risk of encephalopathy. Journal of Hepatology, 26, However, the success of the peritoneo-venous shunt was counterbalanced by the frequent occurrence of side-effects such as bacterial infections and occlusion of the filter.

Ascitic fluid and blood culture shoulcl also be done below. Hemodynamic response to pharmacological treatment of portal hypertension and long-term prognosis of cirrhosis. Features indicating general susceptibility to infection include poor paracetesis activity, reduced complement activy complixaciones impaired leucocyte function.

Laracentesis in hepatic cirrhosis is associated with advanced liver disease and with poor hepatic function and portal hypertension, and consequently it is ckmplicaciones associated with a poor prognosis. There may, therefore, be a case for paracentesis in patients with bleeding oesophageal varices and marked ascites, especially where other treatments are unsuccessful. Ascites is an important development in cirrhosis as it implies a generally poor long term prognosis.

ACE-inhibitors reduce glomerular filtration rate and sodium excretion even in doses which do not reduce the blood pressure. These shunts are used primarily for treating variceal haemorrhage, but intractable ascites has emerged as the second most frequent indication Stanley et al All, however, are associated with poor liver function and include activation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system with high plasma and urine aldosterone, increased sympathetic activity possibly via a hepatorenal reflex arc, and the actions of such agents as arterial natriuric peptide, kallikrein-kinin prostaglandins, nitrous oxide, endothelin, and endotoxin.

Liver transplantation needs to be considered in such a situation.
